For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: It is best to follow up via email. I am not always at my desk, and am not so great at returning calls Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I always look for a well written cover letter. Not everyone submits one, but if you do and it's poorly written or is very cookie-cutter, that's no good. A hand written follow up after an interview is very impressive (I keep them on my bulletin board!). Follow up should happen after a phone interview AND an in-person interview. I hold on to it, it makes me smile, and even if you don't get the job this time, I'm far more likely to reach out to you again if your 'thank you' is sitting in front of me! Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Our application must be completed in it's entirety - when fields are missing, even if they are not "required", it seems like you're cutting corners. Filling out our application only takes 10 minutes, so cutting corners is no good! Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Honesty is key - if there are pre-screen questions included in the application, don't lie. If I ask how much experience you have in XYZ and you select 5+ years but I don't see it on your resume, you get disqualified. Poor grammar and spelling is a big red flag and may not get you disqualified immediately, but I'm on my guard about everything else you submit or say going forward. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Data analytics concept
One of the pillars of an exemplary data management and governance program is data literacy. Organizations often assume that their executives or data users are not data literate and don't understand how to ensure data is of quality and how everyone has a role in creating and managing data. Internal branding about how data helps management make better decisions has been around for a decade. But to go from data to information and knowledge, data literacy is not enough for the clients of data analytics practitioners. Business data analytics users need accurate multi-disciplinary skills to ask themselves what the data tells us and where and how these insights can be applied.

Teacher stands in his classroom

Within the United States, many state departments of education are lowering teacher certification requirements to meet the demands of the current teacher shortage. In New Jersey, for example, aspiring educators no longer need to take PRAXIS exams. In Arizona, people are now allowed to teach in school with just a high school diploma (and current enrollment in university). In New Mexico, the National Guard has been activated as substitute teachers.
